City's day offers new elements, old favorites

VERGENNES — There are few truly new elements in for the 30th annual Vergennes Day, which this year falls on Saturday, Aug. 25.

But when an annual event works well enough to still draw thousands to Vergennes after three decades, organizers believe it’s not a bad idea to rely on its tried-and-true formula — kid-friendly attractions, a road race, the Lions’ Club chicken barbecue, music, horse-drawn wagon rides, car shows and, of course, the Rotary Club’s Rubber Duckie Race.

Clippings: Family had its dog days of summer

By Andy Kirkaldy



Our dog days of August — and June and July — have come to an end.

We have been caring for two extra dogs this summer, on behalf of Mark and Ericka, my wife’s brother and his bride. They have been living in Germany with the dogs, and are returning stateside for Ericka’s new job this month. Because airlines do not fly animals in the heat of the summer, their companions needed an advance flight and a summer home over here.

The venerable sport of football ... OK, I’ll cave in and call it soccer, if for nothing else than the sake of clarity ... has generated a lot of buzz this summer, even in this nation, where football means helmets, pads and concussions, not shin guards, shorts and dramatic embellishments of minor infractions.

VERGENNES — Despite the ongoing renovation of the John Graham Homeless Shelter’s main building on Monkton Road in Vergennes, shelter officials have continued to fulfill the organization’s mission of finding housing for the homeless — even though demand is higher than usual, said Shelter Executive Director Elizabeth Ready.

Ready said plans had first called for the 10-bedroom Monkton Road building to stay open during the $627,000 project, which is expected to be finished in early September.

NEW HAVEN — The usual huge crowds last week flocked to both nights of what is arguably Addison County Fair and Field Days’ single biggest attraction, the No. 1 Auto Parts Demolition Derby, during which veteran driver Tim Whitney won three of 11 heats and Boomer LaFountain celebrated 20 years of crunching collisions with a Thursday win.

Unlike in past years, no end-of-the-evening main feature winners were crowned. Drivers said they had mixed feelings about the format change.
